Cloud Free Night is an online weather forecast information service, for the benefit of the Australia & New Zealand astronomy and photography communities. It is unique in offering a comparison of the widely available forecasts from the United States GFS global model with higher resolution forecasts from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology ACCESS model.

Cloud Free Night is the only service currently providing detailed cloud forecast information from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology ACCESS model which includes higher resolution regional and city models. Forecast maps over specific Australian regions and New Zealand, and meteograms summarising the forecast over the next ten days for particular locations are available.

Cloud Free Night is operated by a small team from the Australia astronomy community. Please contact us (info@cloudfreenight.com) if you would like a meteogram for your home town location or your club's observing site. We would also like to hear your suggestions to enhance the Cloud Free Night service.

Please consider donating to support the development and maintenance of the Cloud Free Night service for the Australia & New Zealand astronomy and photography communities. Contributions to help cover running costs are most welcome. Click on the above image to donate using Paypal.
